We’re recording from our backyard today, so you’ll get to hear cars and birds and airplanes and me taking drinks of beer and all sorts of outside noises. Here was the recording setup:

We also cover the great news that Victoria Mahoney is going to be the second unit director on Episode IX!

Solo is in the can!

Also, that’s probably not Dr. Evazan that L3 is assaulting in that one trailer, after all. Chances are, he has something to do with droid fighting. Which L3 hates. Which brings us to our canon news…

CANON NEWS [26:30]

L3-37 is a proponent of droid rights. So we talk about rights quite a bit. So … let me know if you have any questions.

JOKE [40:45]

Who was Lando Calrissian’s favorite smuggler after that whole carbonite ordeal on Cloud City?

STUMP THE LUMP! [41:55]

Who says, “He’s quite clever you know … for a human being.”

Who is that character saying that about?

STAR WARSY STUFF [2:50]

We’ve been catching up on season 2 of The Freemaker Adventures.

Liam and I are into the third book of the Servants of the Empire quadrilogy.

And we’re almost all caught op on our Marvel Cinematic Universe watch-through!

NEWS [7:05]

We do a quick watch-through of the a new Solo commercial:

Solo is going to run 2 hours and 15 minutes.

We take a look at a lot of Solo toys (as seen here: https://www.starwars.com/news/solo-a-star-wars-story-products-revealed) and what they might tell us about the movie.

Looks like there will be droid fights in Solo.

We’ve been reading up on some new Star Wars comics, including the first trade paperback of the new Darth Vader run. It’s pretty great.

A lost dog walks by outside and we go on a tangent.

We saw this awesome Solo display at the theater when we went to go see The Greatest Show.

I played it cool.

Holdo was Force sensitive? According to this Entertainment Weekly story, yes. I am, however, dubious. http://ew.com/movies/2018/03/27/laura-dern-admiral-holdo-last-jedi-force-sensitive/

Check out this Denny’s ad, which has a ton of new Solo aliens in it!

 

I love this throat-singing musician.

And I think I’m wrong about Dud Bolt. But it’s … sort of close?

Chris from from Star Wars Kidscast joins us this week. The tables are turned for our 100th episode, and instead of us asking the questions, Chris takes the wheel and asks away. It’s a nice change of pace and super fun.

You can follow Chris on Twitter @SWKidscast and his website is http://starwarskidscast.blogspot.com

After talking at length with Chris about everything ranging from favorite characters to how we square being peace-loving hippies while loving Star Wars, we have a bit of Canon News…

CANON NEWS [1:02:55]

Why was Luke running to Rey in The Last Jedi right before he sees her connecting with Kylo? The answer is pretty surprising.

We’re back! Let’s catch up.

STAR WARSY STUFF [5:30]

We loved The Force of Sound, a documentary about the sounds of The Last Jedi. See it here: http://abcn.ws/2ocoEQR

We watched the emotional last episodes of Rebels. We talk about them later in the episode.

Liam and I are still reading the Servants of the Empire series. We’re on book two at the moment. And I’m reading the wonderful novelization of The Last Jedi. So, so good.

NEWS [21:30]

Jon Favreau is helming a live action TV series that’s going to be on the streaming Disney platform.

We have some new information about who Michael K. Williams was going to play in Solo.

And we take a look at a new flyover video of Galaxy’s Edge, the upcoming Star Wars park at Disneyland and Disney World. Check it out:
